Likely to visit RTR from Kolkata in November this year by train. Is it mandatory to undergo COVID-19 test and carry the report?
Covid-19 negative certificate is not required for travelling to tourist hubs in Rajasthan. However, government has issued some guidelines which you'll have to follow:
The Ministry of Forests in India has issued a set of new guidelines that all the tiger reserves will have to follow if they wish to reopen. So, before embarking on that jungle safari or booking your trip to a tiger reserve, here are the rules that you must be aware of:
1) Contactless temperature checks are a must at entry points for all including tourists, drivers and guides.
2) If an individual has a temperature higher than normal, he/she shall be isolated immediately in a dedicated room and shall be taken to the health facility nearby by a team and vehicle kept for COVID-19 positive people.
3) Every visitor is required to wear a face shield and mask including drivers and guides.
4) All the vehicles must have sanitizers and people shall use it at the time of boarding/deboarding.
5) Travellers are also required to maintain social distance from others.
6) Vehicles must be cleaned using disinfectants at all entry points.
7) Entry won’t be allowed to kids below 10 and adults above the age of 65. Officials need to check the documents to ascertain the same at entry gates.
8) Seating capacity in safari vehicles reduced by 50 per cent.
9) Lavatory facilities must be ensured at entry and exit points, as no person would be allowed to get down of their vehicles inside the reserve.
Hope it helps. Cheers!
